Section 2-8. Control devices

Control devices shall be designed and positioned in a way that ensures that they cannot be operated unintentionally and thereby entail a risk of harm to life or health.
Control devices shall be positioned so that they can be reached without difficulty. Control devices that are used continuously shall be positioned so as to prevent static body stresses and unnecessary stretching and twisting of the body in a way that can be hazardous to health.
Control devices shall normally be positioned so that the operator has a full overview of any danger zones from the operator’s seat.
Where no overview is afforded of the work equipment as a whole, a warning signal must be activated automatically in due time before a work operation is initiated. If necessary, it must be possible to lock switches with individual locks.
